STYLE AND MOTHERHOOD WITH ALEX STEDMAN: THE FRUGALITY

Through the lens of her camera she shares her fashion, travel and lifestyle with us including a peak into her journey as a mother. We asked her to share a few tips on her style advice as a mother and, as usual, she did not disappoint.

COMFORT FIRST

‘I’ve luckily worked in a job where I can wear what I like, and I usually dress for comfort anyway. I would say, I found it hard dressing for breastfeeding at first and my body shape had changed so I had to adapt my wardrobe to what fitted and what could be easily pulled up and down. I ended up wearing a lot of tracksuit bottoms and separates.’

REDISCOVER YOUR STYLE, DON’T CHANGE IT

‘I would recommend looking at your wardrobe in a different way. You still need to feel like you and that’s the most important thing. Embrace the change without losing your identity.’

PRACTICALITY AND STYLE CAN COINCIDE

‘I still love clothes and trends, but I must admit I am drawn to more practicality these days. I don’t have as many glamorous events to go to and I am fine with that! I am loving wide leg high waisted jeans and cool joggers with trainers and a denim jacket on the weekends.’

PARE BACK

‘I think the key to a practical wardrobe is a colour palette. I’m not talking tonal, but more reasonable colours that go together allowing you the freedom to mix and match. My wardrobe is mainly beige, black, denim, white and red (with a few ‘extra’ pieces thrown in), so most of my clothes go together. I can wear my favourite crew neck with my joggers and jeans just as easily as I can wear with a sequin skirt.’

EMBRACE YOUR SHAPE AND BE CONFIDENT

‘As much I wouldn’t recommend buying an entire new wardrobe to evolve your style, I do think embracing your body shape rather than worrying about fitting into old clothes can help. I can’t do up most of my old jeans, so I treated myself to a well-cut pair of trousers in my actual size and it has made me feel much more confident.’
